The cancellation of Canada’s largest gay rodeo in Strathmore took a lot of people by surprise when it was announced last month and some people are now stuck with passes that they pre-purchased online.
The Alberta Rockies Gay Rodeo Association has held the event since the 90s and it was scheduled to take place this year from June 30 to July 3 in Strathmore.
ARGRA posted a statement on its website saying that the 2016 festival would not proceed …
“We have made the extremely difficult decision not to proceed with the 2016 festival, due to take place June 30 – July 3, 2016. This decision was not made lightly and we sincerely apologize to all the people this decision affects: the fans, artists, competitors, industry partners, vendors, corporate partners, suppliers and all of our supporters within the community.”
The group has not explained why the event was cancelled and now people who purchased passes for $99 are trying to get their money back from PayPal and credit card companies.
